Water Lilies

I worked on the lily pads today and am calling this one done.  Ended up with a mess and had to use a bit of gouache on the back flowers.  Didn't like the way they looked so held the paper side ways and soaked the area with brush loads of water then added color.  You can see where the greenish color is in the background on the viewer's right.  Also used a bit of gouache on some of the pads and ended up with a bluish tint.  The look of this painting is very different now from the last photo posted.

Although different from the previous post, this painting is still very nice. I would certainly give you A+ for finding creative solutions:-)
